Before anyone goes too nuts, hours two and three of Raw were the two highest rated hours of TV on basic cable last night. Hour one was the fifth highest rated hour of the night on basic cable (two hours of Pawn Stars took third and fourth). So all in all, while the rating wasn't high, the three hours were watched.
The 4/26 edition of Impact was definitely hurt by the draft (even if WWE wasn't overly helped by it) as they did a 0.5 rating, with 739,000 viewers.
The 4/24 edition of AM Raw did a 0.44 rating, with 518,000 viewers.
To the Elite subscribers I want to apologize for not doing a hotline today. A personal situation came up that caused me to be out most of the day. I want to thank Mike and Buck for filling in for me. I also want to thank Pastor J for filling in for Stu on the Impact post game show last night. You did a great job J!
